Diaz, Sakurai To Meet At Dream 6?

              Nick DiazHayato Sakurai

Nick Diaz seems to be a very popular fighter, as of late.  Riding the wave of the controversy of his post-fight ruckus after his bout with K.J. Noons, Diaz – according to MMAFighting.com – could possibly be in line to face Hayato “Mach” Sakurai for the DREAM welterweight title at DREAM 6.  DREAM 6 is scheduled to take place on September 23 in Saitama, Japan.  To add fuel to this fire, Sakurai posted on his blog that the fight has been cancelled until DREAM 6.

DREAM had originally wanted Diaz and Sakurai to meet at DREAM 5 on July 5, but EliteXC needed Diaz for their event at Stockton Arena – in which Diaz will take on Thomas Denny; because Diaz may be heading for a rematch against Noons for the EliteXC lightweight title, the proposed Diaz-Sakurai bout is not definite at this time.
